Mom and dad were surprised with the arrival of their son 3 weeks early! He was just 5 lbs but had the most adorable big feet and hands. I was so honored to be one of the first people to meet little Harrison. This is one of the reasons I love going to clients homes, when the baby is just 5 days old, it is difficult to move let alone leave the house. Harrison’s mom had it all together! His nursery was set up and they were ready. I guess he knew it was time to come home since they were prepared for him! Mom looked amazing and was calm and serene during our photo session. No wonder he smiled in moms arms!
I really love photographing in home newborns. I can get a unique variety of photographs every time. Here, I used their amazing wood floor from their super cool San Francisco apartment as a backdrop. I also set up my little studio right there in the home to capture the sweet cuddly poses just like I would in the studio.
Oh, little Frankie! You were so sweet in the studio. I loved meeting you after knowing your big brother for 2 years. He was skeptical during our shoot but was very sweet to you once he was ready! Look at your tiny fingers and your little toes. I love how you are resting in dad’s hands.
I love photographing the second newborn baby with the older sibling. It is such a special and sweet connection. Enjoy!
It is not a little story, the story of a couple becoming a family. It is a HUGE story! It is such a monumental and pivotal moment in the couple’s lives. It is my absolute pleasure to photograph a couple waiting for their new arrival. I love to see how they interact with each other and how that might be different once the baby arrives. It is incredibly special for me. I think it is special for the family to have these moments documented to treasure that transition and growth as well.
Here is newborn Tristan just a few days old in his home in San Francisco. A few weeks prior to his arrival, I was able to document mom and dad-to-be together in anticipation. Enjoy these sweet maternity photos and the delightful family and newborn photos once Tristan joined mom and dad in the outside world!
